Jim Edmonds Calls His Split With Meghan King Edmonds ‘Emotionally Exhausting’ And Admits Split Drama ‘Spiraled Out Of Control’ And Vows To ‘Make It Right’; He Hopes They ‘Move Forward, In A Healthy, Happy Direction For Every Single Person Involved’

Jim Edmonds admits he that is emotionally exhausted in the wake of allegations that he had cheated on his now-estranged wife, Meghan King Edmonds, with one of the family’s nannies, Carly Wilson after it was reported that the former Real Housewives of Orange County husband filed for divorce on October 25 after five years of marriage.

Jim released a statement to Us Weekly on Wednesday, October 30, He says: “After what has been one of the most emotionally exhausting sleepless five days of my life resulting from a combination of anger, embarrassment, trying to understand, sadness to simply flat. I would like to make this statement:

The last couple years have been rough on my wife and me for many reasons. Marriage is difficult but add three small children under three, two adolescent children, two adult children, building a house and two busy, hard-working spouses and the stress of living our lives in the public eye. At times we are exhausted and feel our life has become one of distrust, kids, work, house, sleep and repeat.

It saddens me tremendously that my wife is hurt. After having a few days to digest the situation, I realize that something that occurred in a split second spiraled out of control with no way to stop it. We were both separately surprised to find out that the media had received details of our private situation without our knowledge.

We both carry an extremely large load and most of our issues could have been worked out if we had more more time for us. With our busy careers and the addition of our son’s medical needs, we were lacking quality time together.

I’m removing myself and all of my family from this unnecessary publicity that I obviously have never quite enjoyed. I have way too much love for my wife and kids for this to happen and it’s time for us to get back to the private life we used to live. Meghan is a truly special woman who my kids are so fortunate to have as their mother.

Hoping for some peace, normalcy, and the ability to move forward in a healthy, happy direction for every single person involved.

I love my family and will make it right again.”

The news comes after it was reported that Jim had filed for divorce from his wife after five years of marriage.

Meghan and Jim split after they got into an argument and police were called. “The latest fight began when he went to a recent hockey game and she began interrogating him about who he went with,” a source told Us Weekly. She also accused him of having an affair with Carly Wilson, one of the couple’s four nannies.

Wilson denied the alleged affair in an Instagram comment on Saturday, when a commenter asked her if the rumors were true. “The allegations are completely false,” she replied.
